Mr Johnson had previously said that he would be giving the First Minister hundreds of thousands of tonnes of fish for Christmas, a reference to the potential gains from a Brexit deal and disagreements over fishing quotas.

"I am probably not one to talk but a hairbrush, maybe? I don’t know,” joked Ms Sturgeon.

She added: "I actually sent him a Christmas card over the weekend so there you go, there is a Christmas card winging its way from me to Boris Johnson.

"We will wait and see whether there is one winging its way in the opposite direction.”
